Help! with this Beijing-Xian-Shanghai itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

We(couple in 30s) are planning a trip to China for 11 days. We are landing in Beijing and leaving from Shanghai. We are struggling to find a countryside/village/nature filled getaway for 2 days maybe after Beijing or after Xian. Would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

So far we have got

1) Beijing: Reach in the afternoon (free)

2) Beijing: Tiananmen square, Forbidden Kingdom, roam and dinner in the city (maybe visit silk market too)

3) Beijing: Great Wall of China Mutianyu section, roam and dinner in the city

4) Beijing: Zoo (for pandas) and Summer palace. Overnight train to Xian

5) Xian: Roam in the city (still working on what to do on this day)

6) Xian: Terracotta Warriors

7) ??

8) ??

9) Shanghai: Bund and Yu Gardens and roam in the city

10) Shanghai: Daytrip to a Watertown, maybe Xitang?? Evening free

11 )Shanghai - French Concession + explore neighbourhoods (flyout in late evening)

We haven't booked our train tickets yet, would be booking it as soon as we can fill in the two days. Hoping the experts here can help us out.

Thank you so much!
